He joins countrymen Makarios Avramidis and Pavlos Xantholopolous as the only WSOP bracelet winners from Greece.

"It feels good," Sotiropolous said of his victory. "It feels amazing. Winning a's one of my dreams."

Sotiropolous, Tedeschi, Zamani, Lommel, Tomczak, Racener - sounds like awesome mobster names. I mean like in a real maffia or something like that. Luca Brasi sleeps with the fishes now anyway.

I don't know much about the Greek guy but he is obviously a pretty good player to have won this tournament,not easy to win a WSOP bracelet and definitely not with Racener,Hastings and Kaverman at the table as well.
